UCS 5.1.1 officially added a remote packet capture option to the phone in order to troubleshoot issue and provide wireshark traces if required.

 

<capture diags.pcap.enabled="1"  diags.pcap.remote.enabled="1" />

 

Above Parameters activate the feature on the Phone. 

 

The UCS 5.1.0 Admin Guide describes this on page 170 in the Remote Packet Capture for Logs section.

 

  • To start using this feature please download Wireshark from => here <=

  • Start Wireshark after the installation and select the Capture Interface Options

  • Manage Interfaces => Remote Interfaces => Add

    image

  • IP Address of the phone
    Port 2002
    Username: Polycom
    Password: MAC Address of the phone in lower case and no colon ( : )

  • Once OK is pressed the interface should show up

VLAN or additional Network Interfaces:

In the above photo the Phone uses a VLAN 242 but on a Trio as an example the WiFi interface can be displayed and selected.

 

Additional Settings

 

In addition to the above Wireshark can also be configured to capture a rolling trace with options to set a duration or a certain file size or the amount of files to be captured.

 

  • Capture > Options > Output

    image

    Filename: Testfile.pcap or Testfile.pcapng

    The above will create 100MB files up until Wireshark is stopped

    Ticking "Use a ring buffer with" Files can be used if the Trace should run for a certain duration i.e. an issue is reproduced but a "rolling" Trace should capture the issue. Make this a larger number so the event is not missed.

  • Capture > Options > Options

    image

    The above allows specifying the amount of files that should be created until the Trace is being stopped automatically

  • Capture > Options > Input > Capture filter for selected interfaces

    image

    The above is usually selected to ensure only the traffic of a certain device is captured

    Capture Range of Devices

    Example:
    (eth.addr[0:3]== 00:04:f2 or eth.addr[0:3]==64:16:7F or eth.addr[0:3]==9c:ad:ef or eth.addr[0:3]==48:25:67)
     
    The above will only capture data from a Poly MAC Range.

  • VLAN's

    Traditionally Windows PC's do not capture the VLAN Tag to show in Wireshark
    image
    This must be enabled via a Registry entry:
